According to many scientists, much of the ocean remains unexplored. However, marine biologist Alexander Semenov looks to shed some light on the fascinating, and often weird, creatures of the deep blue ocean with a few interesting underwater pictures. While the name Alexander Semenov rolls off the tongue quite naturally, chances are you’ve probably never heard of him; the extraordinary photographer heads the diving at Moscow State University’s White Sea Biologic Station, bringing a decade of underwater photography experience to numerous research and exploration projects.

The ocean is truly filled with mesmerising creatures, and viewing these underwater pictures from Semenov’s latest underwater expedition, it reaffirms this. During this project he chose to focus on invertebrate animals found in the Arctic Ocean: worms, squishy things, translucent moving things, and creatures we’d rather show you than describe. Most of these creatures have never been documented with such beauty and clarity before, have a peek.
